Under the auspices of the United Nations' promotion of international peace and security, WFUNA works to promote the development of peaceful co-existence and co-operations among and within nations. WFUNA works with its United Nations Associations' (UNAs) around the world, with actors at the UN, and with engaged global citizens, to support the UN in its efforts to maintain international peace and security. WFUNA runs Peace and Security programmes with member UNAs at a national level, and works on policy and advocacy issues at a global level at UNHQ in New York.  

WFUNA's current activities within the peace and security area have a special focus on: 

'Sustaining Peace’...should be broadly understood as a goal and a process to build a common vision of a society, ensuring that the needs of all segments of the population are taken into account, which encompasses activities aimed at preventing the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of conflict, addressing root causes, assisting parties to conflict to end hostilities, ensuring national reconciliation and moving towards recovery, reconstruction and development, and emphasizing that sustaining peace is a shared task and responsibility that needs to be fulfilled by the Government and all other national stakeholders, and should flow through all three pillars of the United Nations engagement at all stages of conflict, and in all its dimensions, and needs sustained international attention and assistance.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 2282 (2016).
